I have the subject blender, the rubber coupling drive is breaking and needs replacing. Does anyone know if it just pops off with some lever action or there is another mechanism for removing/reinstalling it? Model is KSB5.
thanks

Love the machine when it works, but this is the second that's gone bad. First I sent back while it was under warranty. Thanks a bunch for your help.

Instruction Sheet for KitchenAid Blender Coupling Drive Installation

1) Unplug Blender
2) With blender facing you, insert flat blade screwdriver (3/8 to 7/16 inch) between the black coupling drive and the blender housing.
3) Raise up on the screwdriver to turn the coupling drive clockwise (it is a left hand thread so the coupler keeps tight during use). Keep making ¼ turns until the coupling drive comes off. Do not worry about bending the old coupling drive. You are going to throw it away.
4) There is a flat spot on the blender shaft and construction of a flat tool is possible, but not necessary.
5) Check the threads on the blender shaft and clean the old metal shavings from the threads. Hand tighten the new coupling drive. It will be kept tight during normal use due to the left hand thread design and the clockwise spinning of the blades.

Please advise on the removal and install of the coupling drive before I go at it with improper tools due to impatience.I am ordering the part now.
Thank you.

I found this to be a quick and easy repair. Use a thin 9/32" ignition wrench that fits under the broken coupler and onto the shaft. Then place a channel lock plier on the broken coupler. While holding the wrench in place, twist the coupler CLOCKWISE (reverse threads). The coupler will quickly unscrew. Put the new one on and tighten it counter clockwise. Use of the blender will tighten it more.
The Whirlpool part is Part number: AP2930430

This way really works! The metal on the coupler is super soft and weak so when you bend it off with the screw driver the threads oh the blender's housing aren't damaged at all. Super easy, and super quick, it only took me about 5 minutes. If you can save a $150 blender do it. Times are hard

Thanks for all the info. I just changed mine. In addition to the screwdriver to lift up on the old coupler, I used a pair of needle nose pliers to hold the shaft while turning it clockwise.
